The campus of Lon Morris College, including most of its buildings, is set to be auctioned off Monday after the state’s oldest junior college filed for bankruptcy last year.

The two-year United Methodist School is in the small East Texas town of Jacksonville, located about 125 miles southeast of Dallas.

Lon Morris filed for bankruptcy in July and suspended classes in August. Auction firm Ameribid says the sale of the 112-acre campus will include most of the school’s facilities, including the library, chapel, administration building, classroom facilities and athletic fields.
